Midfielder Chong, 22, became the fifth United or Man City player since Christmas to be burgled by a gang targeting stars in the area.

Rianna told how the raiders woke the pair by shining torches in their eyes before yanking the player out of bed by his ankle as they brandished knives and a baseball bat.

The performer — who met the player on social media after he spotted her nightclub fire act in Birmingham — said: “I started shaking uncontrollably and thought it was a nightmare. After a few minutes I realised it was real.

“One of the men threatened us with a very large kitchen knife and another grabbed Tahith by the ankle and dragged him out of bed.

“Another was holding a baseball bat which he was waving in our faces. He was shouting, ‘Where are the watches?’.

They called Tahith by his nickname ‘Chongy’ and were demanding to know where his watches were. He was saying he didn’t keep his watches at the house.

“The blokes were terrifying and there was one in particular who was about 6ft 4ins who was menacing and seemed like the leader.

“They were continually threatening us, saying if they found watches and we were lying they’d chop us up.

“They took our phones off us, then they took my second-hand Rolex, which was worth £3,000, plus my Louis Vuitton bag.”

Chong’s teammates Paul Pogba, 29, Victor Lindelof, 27, and Jesse Lingard, 29, all had their homes raided in December and January.

The gang left Chong’s house in Sale, Gtr Manchester, after around 40 minutes and he hit a panic alarm.

Police arrived in minutes, but have made no arrests.

Rianna added: “I have not had a proper night’s sleep since and cannot sleep with the light off. I have been diagnosed with PTSD.”
